The New England Patriots agreed to re-sign veteran quarterback Cam Newton to another one-year deal on Friday, according to multiple reports.
Newton will return for another season in New England in a deal that will earn him close to $14 million, ESPN reported. The deal does not guarantee that the Patriots will not continue to make moves to address their quarterback situation in the coming weeks, ESPN reported.

The Boston Globe first reported Newton’s agreement with the Patriots.
Newton totaled 2,657 passing yards for just eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions this past season. He also ran for 592 yards and 12 touchdowns but struggled to get to the playoffs as the Patriots finished 7-9.
Newton expressed his interest in remaining with the Patriots and recently addressed some of the issues that he experienced in his first season, including missing time because of COVID-19 while also learning a new system.
